There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death. Proverbs 14:12 (ESV)
“Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few. Matthew 7:13-14 (ESV)
I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Therefore choose life, that you and your offspring may live, loving the Lord your God, obeying his voice and holding fast to him, for he is your life and length of days. Deuteronomy 30:19-20 (ESV)
Choose Whom You Will Serve
“Now therefore fear the Lord and serve him in sincerity and in faithfulness. Put away the gods that your fathers served beyond the River and in Egypt, and serve the Lord. And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the Lord, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua 24:14-15 (ESV
Whether we believe it or not, we have a choice to make in this life, and we must make it while still living on this earth..
God Himself has given us that freedom of choice.
Whether to believe in and follow the God of the Bible, which leads to eternal life with Him, or, do your own thing and live your best life now which leads to eternal death.
God has given us that choice.. but, He would warn us to choose Him..
Eternity is a long time.
Don`t put off for tomorrow what you can do today. For tomorrow may never come.
"It is not thy hold on Christ that saves thee; it is Christ. It is not thy joy in Christ that saves thee; it is Christ. It is not even thy faith in Christ, though that be the instrument; it is Christ's blood and merit."
- Charles Spurgeon
